Folding Bench/Bed for Van Build Out

Anyone in need of a folding bench/bed for their home build out?

I recently took this one out of my van. The previous owner installed it, but it doesn't fit with the layout I put together unfortunately.

I'm surprised this hasn't sold yet, especially for the price you are asking. GLWS.

Is this for a Ford e-series up to year 2014 van?
What manufacturer makes these?

I am removing it from my 1998 Ford Econoline Cargo van. The previous owner purchased it and installed it himself, so I’m not positive on if this aligns with factory bolt holes for E-series up to year 2014. I’m following up with him to see where he originally bought it from and will post more info on the manufacturer shortly.

Update: The previous owner informed me that this is in fact a Ford sofa-seat that was taken from a “conversion van” during a similar era to my van... my estimation is 2000 or 2001 based on the tags on the bench. It used to have an electric motor (prior to being installed in my van), but is currently manually operated.

Local guy here.
What kind of shape is the foam in? Useable for sleeping somewhat comfortably?
Is it lap belts only?
Thanks

The foam is in good condition and is quite comfortable to sleep on. After a day or two of use the foam can tend to fall through the support bars (poor design imo), so I have to readjust it before sleeping on it again. Would be a pretty quick fix to add a a little more support to keep the foam in place.
The middle seat is only lap belts, but the outer seats have shoulder belts you can attach to the frame.

Rockbender took one of these and cut it down and had it reupholstered to make a '50' style/sized bench bed. It came out great. For this price of admission I would buy it in a heartbeat if I was close and store it for a future project.

It can easily be adapted to go in any make/model of van. What you're getting here is the properly built frame and hinge setup. The rest is easily modified.
